About two-thirds down §5.12.1, "in the same flow" is defined as "not
positioned and not a float", and §9.3.2 defines "positioned" such that
it includes relatively positioned things, so the definition appears to
consider all relatively-positioned descendents as not being in the same

This is surprising to me.  If it is intentional, then please draw
explicit attention to this.  If that was not the intention then
"positioned" must be changed to "absolutely positioned".

Minor: It would be good if the forward reference technical terms
‘block-level’, ‘positioned’ (or ‘absolutely positioned’ as the case may
be) and ‘float’ be hyperlinked to the anchor names responsible for
defining those terms, namely visuren.html#block-level,
visuren.html#positioned-element (‘positioned’),
visuren.html#absolutely-positioned (‘absolutely positioned’), and
visuren.html#floats respectively.
